Illusory Wealth: Victor Dubreuil?s Cryptic Currencies

quote [ After supposedly stealing 500,000 francs from his bank, the mysterious Victor Dubreuil (b. 1842) turned up penniless in the United States and began to paint dazzling trompe l?oeil images of dollar bills. Once associated with counterfeiting and subject to seizures by the Treasury Department, these artworks are evaluated anew by Dorinda Evans, who considers Dubreuil?s unique anti-capitalist visions among the most daring and socially critical of his time. ]

Charles Boycott: The Man Who Became a Verb

quote [ The act of boycotting an organization or a person dates back to centuries, but the word ?boycott? itself is relatively new.

His name was Charles Cunningham Boycott. ]

Eating and Reading with Katherine Mansfield

quote [ Like fast food and snacks, the short story has been derided as minor cuisine, ephemeral and insubstantial, light fare compared to the novel?s sustenance. For Katherine Mansfield, a great master of the form, eating offered a model for the sensuous consumption of her fiction ? stories, in turn, that are filled with scenes of alimentary pleasure. On the centenary of the New Zealand writer?s death, Aime Gasston samples her appetites. ]
